Omari McQueen, the youngest award-winning vegan chef in the UK is only 11 years old. He’s now the founder and owner of his own restaurant called “Dipalicious”.
Although menu details have not yet been released, Omari loves sharing vegan Caribbean food on his Social Media accounts. His company Dipalicious makes vegan dips inspired by Caribbean cuisine, such as Luv’in Jerk, Caribbean Kick, and Coco Curry.
“I can’t believe my dreams are coming true,” McQueen wrote on Instagram earlier this month.
How McQueen Became A Vegan Chef
Omari became determined to make food the world can enjoy. He found his interest in veganism at 8 years old watching a PETA UK video. At age 7, his parents ignited a passion for cooking.
he found that the end result was too dry and, not knowing if Heinz was vegan, he made his first dip. It was a hit with friends and family, which inspired him to found Dipalicious. He began saving for his own bus-converted vegan restaurant as well as ready meals for kids. Today, he also hosts kids’ cooking workshops from home.
The young entrepreneur’s accomplishments have already been recognized a number of times. In 2018, he won the TruLittle Hero Award for being the Entrepreneur Hero under 12 by Cause4Children Ltd. He won the Compassionate Kid Award from PETA for his work helping animals last November.
“His compassion and his determination to create a better world for animals are a wonderful example for other kids – and adults – to follow,” said PETA director Elisa Allen in a statement.
